Is Kassadin Really, in all honesty, OP?

I see it so often, that Kassadin
gets banned, whether in ranked or draft
mode. I'm just wondering, after having
played him a lot myself... Why?

Do people really think he's that OP?
I mean any one who has tried playing
him, surely agrees that pre-6 he's
really bad and if you merely put a
Talon against him in mid, he'll
get slaughtered, if that Talon knows
how to play.

Sure he has a ranged silence Null Sphere
and an AOE slow Force Pulse, plus his
infamous ultimate Riftwalk... But besides
those things and his passive Void Stone
and W Nether Blade what's the big deal?

In higher ELO's I don't even think he's on
the radar, as for OP champs. Plus, I also
think that Garens silence lasts longer. .

I kill Kassadin with Viktor. He may be an anti-mage, he may have good damage and a silence, but he's still squishy and melee, and prone to CC like a boss. XD

He gets banned out of stupidity, I feel.

If you're even decently good, you'd shut him down hard enough that he'll be useless.

Exactly! You might just be saying
What I want to hear, haha, but that's what
I feel. Thus I get angry when people ban
him or when people rage at me, for not
doing so. I once was captain and didn't
ban him, at him point he got picked by the
other team. My team was furious and said
we'd lose now. But I convinced Talon to go
mid and he won BIG. They didn't say a word. . .


Also OTGBionicArm, true, true... I actually
fail pretty much every time I have to face
Viktor.

Hue, the other day Kassadin locked in on enemy team and I picked Talon. He's like "Eff that" and goes bot and sends Tristana so he doesn't have to deal with me. I proceed to kill Tristana 3 times as well as their Dr. Mundo who was trying to pick on Hecarim in the jungle.

After my killfest at mid; I look down and see that my friend playing Urgot has completely zoned Kassadin HARD and he has like 13 CS at 20 minutes.

Good move, Kassadin.

Hahaha, that's epic and it's exactly what I'm talking
about. But why don't the majority of average players seem
to realize this? Is the ultimate too impressive to look at
or what? It's a huge, low CD flash afterall.

He's annoying to try and gank unless you're Maokai or something similar. He also has really good surprise ganks if he's allowed to roam.

That's why he's banned. XD

The thing with Kassadin is that he shuts down a nice deal of mages if a) Kassadin is good, and b) The opponent doesn't quite understand him.

And since he shuts them down, he's insta considered op. And then, people ban him

Hue, anyone with a snare or stun kills him easily.
